Spurs to be at full strength against Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur will be at full strength when they take on Arsenal on Saturday. Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that nobody was injured in Wednesday's Capital One Cup match and that he will have his full compliment of players available to him, not that he knows who he's going to play yet.

"We need to analyze the players today after last night’s game and afterwards we will decide the squad for Saturday," said Pochettino on Thursday afternoon.

The only player who will not be available to play is Kyle Walker, but he has been out all season and isn't expected to return anytime soon as he recovers from abdominal surgery. Realistically, he's not part of the squad right now.

Andros Townsend hinted that Wednesday's match was a chance for some fringe players to earn a spot in the starting lineup against Arsenal, and it will be interesting to see if that was really the case. Could Jan Vertonghen return to the Premier League team? Who will be in the central midfield? There are questions.

The good news is that Pochettino will have his full squad to choose from. Whoever he chooses. The same can't be said of Arsenal.
